In an hour or so, my baby bruvah is going to get wheeled into an operating room at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh to have a heart valve replaced. Trying to focus on the positives here...
- He and my parents will be in Pittsburgh for the majority of this week. They won't really be up for gallivanting around the city and taking in the sights, but it's nice that I can visit them after a 20-minute drive versus a 2-hour drive.
- I am planning to peer pressure him into binge-watching some TV shows that I have obsessed over so he can share in this obsession, since he'll have some serious time on his hands during his recovery.
- Because this is a follow-up surgery to a surgery he had when he was only a few months old, it's being done at a children's hospital. There's just something ridiculous about a 6-foot tall 20-something being taken care of by the same staff that take care of toddlers and the like. Apparently most rooms have an Xbox 360 in them and the various floors and wings of the hospital are named after zoo animals. That's inherently joyful, right?
So, if you have an excess of positive energy to send out into the universe today, send some toward Pittsburgh, PA, and keep your appendages crossed for smooth sailing for my family this week. See you on the other side, brother.
